PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SON BARRON TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID -19
President Donald Trump’s 14-year-old son, Barron, tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) but exhibited no symptoms, after both of his parents contracted the virus, first lady Melania Trump said on Wednesday.
“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms,” Melania Trump said in a statement.
She said she and Barron had since tested negative for the virus.
Melania Trump said her symptoms were “minimal” and that she hoped to resume her duties as first lady as soon as she can.
Donald Trump spent three nights in a military hospital after announcing on Oct. 2 that he and Melania had tested positive.
To treat the virus, he received an experimental dual antibody therapy developed by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc and Gilead Sciences Inc’s antiviral remdesivir, as well as the steroid dexamethasone.
